- Bella Sera (Beautiful Evenings)
Today I got a photo of Bella Sera from her new Mommy. I know, I “should” blog only about the happy, positive stuff. Right? Wrong! That is not the only thing life is about. Just like we have positive we also have negative. I had kind of stopped blogging about my real life for awhile because it isn’t the perfect princess post op life. Well Kiss MY TIARA..I realized this is self imposed guideline that is unrealistic to life…
Perfection is too much to ask of myself. Life doesn’t always happen with rainbows and roses. Sometimes it does but a good life lesson is to learn, the Universe gives, the Universe can take away. Life is as much about learning to dance in the rain as it about learning to dance 🙂
I figure why bother blogging if I can’t blog my true life right? In my life.. the world is not perfect, and I am not either. I admit it.
For the past year I have been on an accelerated class in Life University of Hardknocks. I am not complaining, please don’t take it that way. But I would be lying if I didn’t say there are times that are harder than others. When I gave birth to my children I thought I would have them under my wing until they were grown and 18. Life didn’t happen that way, and I was a grandmother before either one of them were 18.
When I adopted Bella and Dolly (two beautiful cats) I thought I would keep them until we all died. Dolly got killed way before her time in an accident. And when I gave up my apartment, and moved in with friends, I had to give up Bella. I know that sounds corny for some people. To some people it’s just a cat. For me she was my evening sunshine. I named her Bella Sera because it means Beautiful Evening in Italian. Many beautiful evenings is what we had together.
She would lay upon my belly and purrrrr.
This is not a pitty thread, this is a grateful thread. I am so very thankful to my friends Bob and Haven Womack for giving Bella a home. I was looking at having to take her back to the Shelter, and although it was a no kill shelter she has been declawed and would have to stay in a cage until she got adopted.
Bob and Haven were my Earth angels and provided a safe Haven for Miss Bella and I am forever thankful, plus I can visit.
Although my time was cut short with Bella and I living together, I am glad I loved her anyway. She has left paw prints on my heart.. paws of peace…
